Of SPRING HILL COLLEGE 

MOBILE, ALABAMA

dian and master of ceremonies, 
star of screen, radio, stage, and 
countless appearances, BOB 
HOPE!

WE GRATEFULLY DEDICATE 




With the generous cooperation of Mr. Bill Smith of 
20th Century Fox, Father Foley headed an all-out effort 
to bring Bob Hope and a galaxy of other famed enter- 
tainers to Mobile for a benefit performance at Ladd 
Stadium the night of Saturday, November 15. Staged 
to aid the College's Expansion Drive, his show wowed 
an audience of many thousands who braved threatening 
weather. With Mary Markham and Goody Leviton run- 
ning the show behind the scenes, Hope took over out 
front. He introduced and acted out skits with Ann B. 
Davis ("Schultsie" of the Bob Cummings Show) and TV's 
gorgeous Joan Shawlee. With Hugh O'Brian he dueled 
as "Snake-Nosed Hope." Interspersed were the antics 
of sad-faced Emmett Kelly, songs by Molly Bee (of Ten- 
nessee Ernie's TV show) and sultry-voiced Erin O'Brien. 
Hope joked with Jerry Colonna, whose "Swinging Kings" 
woke up the whole city. Gary Crosby traded insults 
with Hope and sang two blues numbers.

ADMINISTRATION 
and FACULTY 



The Bob Hope Benefit Show demonstrated a wel- 
come fact: Spring Hill College can count on an amazing 
amount of cooperation from its friends, student body, 
and faculty. In addition to those names already men- 
tioned on our Dedication pages, we could have singled 
out a host of others who made the Show possible: the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce and its volunteer workers; 
Mobile businessmen; City and County officials and po- 
lice, etc., etc. But on this page we want to mention 
especially our student organizations and faculty: Mr. 
Feldhaus and his poster artists; the ROTC and its cadets; 
Father Lynette and staff. And again more "et ceteras." 
All were welded together by Father Foley with the per- 
mission and cooperation of Father Bergen, Father Rivet, 
and Father President. 

All of this dedicated purpose was but a sample and 
demonstration of the underlying harmony which exists 
among Spring Hillians — even though it might not seem 
so obvious in the day-to-day give and take of faculty- 
administration-student-alumni relations. 

This past long year is still a bit out of focus because 
of its proximity, but we are confident that in the years 
to come we will look back on it as a giant step forward 
into the brighter future we wish for our beloved College.

New Science Buildings 



Faculty and friends gathered on the Avenue of Oaks 
May 25 to celebrate the dedication of two first fruits of 
the Hill's Building Program Drive. Leaders of the 
Drive, and science faculty members were honored by 
appropriate speeches. And (insert) Dr. Arthur E. Lilley 
of Yale University enthralled auditors by his lecture on 
Radio Astronomy. He pointed out the necessity of co- 
operation among scientists, humorously suggesting that 
our chemistry and physics faculties share one another's 
air-conditioned facilities for congenial get-togethers.

Unobtrusively, the Jesuit Lay Brothers assigned by obedience 
to Spring Hill College go about their tasks with silent concern 
for the welfare of faculty and students, demonstrating by their 
lives the power that devotion to God can accomplish. The

their hearts and those of all Spring Hillians, from its place of 
honor in the College Chapel.

Lirula Patrick and Joy Serda were among the 
coeds wlw stepped forth in Chi Rho's Fashion 
Show. This mid-October affair was a first and 
a natural for Spring Hill's gals. Mrs. Marge 
Derby helped organize this College Inn extrava- 
ganza, and Mobile firms loaned the tempting 
outfits displayed. 



Off on the Right Foot ♦ . . 




Freshmen and new students reported at the Hill September 14 for tests and 
orientation. Old hands joined them for registration a few days later, and the 
Registrar reported that the overall enrollment in all divisions was 1,149. The 
traditional rains made their appearance, but things went along smoothly — largely 
through the great work of Student Government's Orientation Committee mem- 
bers. Zealous extra-eurriculars enthusiasts made their first moves to get or- 
ganized for a big new year. The faculty slaved through registration and burned 
the midnight oil to prepare for their opening classes. Coach Gardiner shep- 
herded his hot prospects along the ropes. And Father Rivet lost a bit more of 
his remaining hair in efforts to satisfy all demands for satisfactory rooms and 
congenial room mates. 



[ 27 ] 



THOSE FIRST DAYS... 




Father Rivet greets Diane Zinn and Pat Elder. 




Father Smith and Orin Wood warn newcomers. 




The Sunday evening of their arrival, a get-acquainted party 
got the new arrivals acquainted. Next day, Reverend Father 
President and Father Tom Cronin got in their licks. And an 
Icebreaker Dance ended another day. Other parties on the two 
following nights. Survivors were eligible to register.

As usual, even the Faculty found it 
difficult to get caps and gowns adjusted 
properly, but the Procession finally was 
formed and headed for the Chapel in 
bright sunlight. Father Tom Cronin 
was Celebrant for the Mass. Monsignor

late Conception Church, Memphis, 
preached the sermon — which was 
punctuated by a certain photographer's 
dropping metal objects on the marble 
floor.

attended the Institute in Physics (supported by the 
National Science Foundation and local Industries). 
Thirty new graduates were honored during Com- 
mencement Services beginning at 8 p.m. July 24. 
Father Claude J. Stallworth, S.J., S.H.C. '31 and

Summer in Europe 

Mr. Sam Betty escorted another group of stu- 
dents to Europe this summer, this time for ac- 
credited studies at Lausanne, Switzerland. No 
details or photos of their experiences were avail- 
able at our publication time, but we here present 
pictures taken by the 1958 group. Their enthu- 
siasm sparked this year's group of student- 
tourists.

Veteran hold-overs sparked Student Govern-

But eertainly the loudest noise was reserved for 
during the basketball season, prior to one of 
those after-the-game dances sponsored by Stu- 
dent Government: seems that someone dropped 
the College Inn piano off his truck while trans- 
porting it to the armory. Another piano was 
requisitioned, and the dance was a big success — 
like all other Student Government-sponsored af- 
fairs this past year. Hard work by the various 
committees paid off in better cooperation among 
student organizations.

\n Memoriam 



PIUS XII 




Spring Hill joined October 16 in the world- 
wide mourning for the death of Pope Pius XII, 
who had passed to his reward October 9, 1958, 
after almost 20 years of labor in the Holy See. 
A former Papal Secretary of State, Pope Pius 
worked tirelessly to keep the Church strong and 
her people faithful through war, religious perse- 
cutions, and aggressions. World War II broke 
out only five months after his coronation, but 
even greater troubles arose for the Church after 
that war ended, as Communists attacked the 
Church's leaders in countries occupied by the 
Reds. 

In 1949, Pius XII issued his decree of excom- 
munication for all who willfully embraced Com- 
munism. But perhaps he will be best remem- 
bered for changes in the liturgy and regulations; 
fasting rules for Communion were revised, eve- 
ning Masses were authorized, use of the vernacu- 
lar was permitted during administration of the 
Sacraments, the Holy Week liturgy was changed, 
etc. 

In 1950, he proclaimed that Mary's Assump- 
tion into Heaven is a dogma of Faith — the first 
such definition since 1870.

these, and took this picture of the 262nd Supreme Pontiff.

Mid-Year RETREATS 

After a grueling two weeks of final exams, Spring Hill's Cath- 
olic students made their annual retreats. Senior men drove 
over to Xavier Hall to Pass Christian, Miss., for a closed retreat 
Jan. 27-29. Senior coeds also made a closed retreat — at Mobile's 
Visitation Convent, where their director was Father August 
Coyle, S.J. Day students (men) and boarders made their retreats 
separately, with Father John Schroeder, S.J. (day) and Father 
Martin V. Jarreau, S.J. (boarders) as retreat-masters. The "open" 
retreat for coeds was conducted by Father Moody in the Chapel 
at Providence Hospital, Mobile.

In preliminary balloting January 8, sixteen Hill coeds 
were selected as "Finalists," eligible for the final campus- 
wide balloting February 2. Winners were announced 
and presented during half-time ceremonies of the Hill- 
Loyola basketball game at McGill's Portier Center Feb- 
ruary 5. "Big Men on Campus" escorted Miss Torch 
and each Favorite as their names were called out and 
they promenaded to their places. In addition to those 
pictured here, other Finalists were Mary Ann Bolton, 
Angela Mikill, Cindy Anderson, Fairy Carter, Patricia 
Elder, Barbara Mikill, and Cynthia Schumacher. 



Above are our 1959 "Miss TORCH" and her Court of 
FAVORITES. Front: Mary Ann RA1LEY, Mobile sen-

PHI KAPPA 

Theta 



Spring Hill's Alpha Lambda 
chapter of Phi Kappa, national 
Catholic fraternity, traces its ori- 
gins to the former "Sigma Alpha 
Kappa" fraternity, which four 
years ago was integrated with 
Phi Kappa. This year, the 
group's history saw another mile- 
stone: Phi Kappa merged with 
Theta Kappa Phi, this country's 
other national Catholic frater- 
nity. Hence a new national fra- 
ternity, Phi Kappa Theta, which 
combines Theta Kappa Phi's 26 
chapters with Phi Kappa's 35 
units. 

Campus activities of Phi Kap- 
pa Theta this year included in- 
stitution of the "Father William 
O'Leary Activity Award," and 
presentation of Best Pledge and 
Outstanding Senior awards to 
Bob Sullivan and Jim McMahon, 
respectively. 

Stephanie Zieman was Phi 
Kappa's 1958-'59 Sweetheart. 
Sister and Sponsor were Rose 
Vella and Mary Liz Jongebloed, 
respectively.

Chi Rho 



The only sorority at Spring Hill, Chi Rho continued 
this past year as one of the most rapidly developing 
groups on campus. The 26 new members accepted 
this year were the first to experience an initiation cere- 
mony. Another innovation, the Oct. 16 Fashion Show, 
drew a full house which even included a sprinkling of 
campus males. 

In November, the Chi Rho girls raffled off various 
goods for the United Fund, and December 6 saw the 
annual Angel Dance shift to the Sage Avenue Armory. 
The "Rackwards Party" April 4 was such a success 
that the coeds decided to make it an annual affair. 



Dinner-dancing at Rayley's April 18 brought Chi 
Rho's social season to an end, with the usual presenta- 
tion of novelty awards. Johnny Rrennan and Louie 
Courie were introduced as Chi Rho's new Rrothers, 
succeeding Charlie Boyle and Marty O'Donnell. Jack 
Gleeson was unveiled as "Biggest Lady-Killer," Mary 
Williams as "Riggest Floater," Jack Houlihan (for 2nd 
year) as unreeling the "Riggest Line," etc. Mr. and 
Mrs. Sam Retty, along with Ruzzy Hayden and Julie 
Matanock, were proclaimed as "Cutest Couples."

OPEN HOUSE" 



Only seven years ago, Spring Hill finally accepted 
full-time coed students, but there was no accommodation 
for them. They found approved rooms with families 
off campus, sometimes miles away. This year, the Col- 
lege bought two large and nearby homes and began 
adapting them as coed residences. Finally the gals 
moved in, and they celebrated with a gala open house 
March 1, to show off their new homes.

Latin - American and International Relations Clubs 



With innumerable meetings and parties, the Latin- 
Americans were probably the liveliest and friendliest 
campus group. Year's highlights: discovering Andy's 
Place on Broad Street near Government, and viewing 
"home" movies, supplied by Otto Vinas, of actual fight- 
ing during Castro's Cuban Revolution.

The International Relations Club sponsored regular 
lectures and discussions on a broad front. Special inter- 
est attached to several of the meetings because their 
speakers had first-hand information: Emmanuel Ishaq, 
freshman from Baghdad, acquainted members and guests 
with the customs and present difficult situation in Iraq; 
and campus Cuban students led a meeting which dis- 
cussed the Cuban Revolution. 

In addition, a number of movies were shown, such 
as the ones on the Rise and Fall of Mussolini, the Span- 
ish Civil War, and the Hungarian Revolution. And 
campus students from Panama led a discussion on the 
background and problems of Central America.

And to local high schools, to spread the mes- 
sage of "Study to be a Med-Tech!" 

Members went "all out" in helping to make 
the February 22 Science Day a success, acting

Yenni PLAYERS 



"Waiting for Lefty," 'a dramatic reading pre- 
sented October 23 for the benefit of the United 
Fund, officially opened the Yenni Players' 1958- 
59 dramatic season. Again in November the 
Players stepped out to the footlights, presenting 
a twin bill; Gerhardt Hauptmann's "Ascension of 
Hannele" and W. B, Yeat's "Cathleen ni Houli- 
han." 

Yenni's major production, Patrick Hamilton's 
ANGEL STREET, went on the boards in March 
— which month also saw publication of Mr. 
Fleissner's article on poetic drama at Spring Hill. 
It appeared in the March issue of CATHOLIC 
THEATER, national periodical of the National 
Catholic Theatrical Council. 

Five Yenni members were formally initiated 
December 23 into the Hill's Alpha Epsilon chap- 
ter of Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dra- 
matics fraternity. They were Madeline Moffett, 
James Lewis, Mary Williams, Sidney C. Smith, 
and Ann Crabtree. 

Claude Barbazon and Tom Crane served as 
president of Yenni. Mr. Robert Fleissner was 
Moderator of the Players, and was made an hon- 
orary member of Alpha Psi Omega.

Right: Lovers' farewell, "Cathleen." 



Below: Mrs. Dolly Deroux-Dauphin gave

"The Ascension of Hannele," a two-act poetic drama adapted from the Ger- 
man of Gerhardt Hanptmann, was Yenni's first major production of the year. It 
is a modern morality play, and gave us the opportunity to compare it with 
EVERYMAN, presented two years ago by Yenni. Madeline Moffett played 
Hannele, a poor girl driven to death by her dissolute father. She is befriended 
by townspeople, especially the school teacher (Manfred Hummel), who sym- 
bolizes Christ, Who welcomes Hannele after her death. 




Above: Schoolteacher prays at death-bed of

As ihcir final performance, Yenni Plavers offered a three-night stand of 
ANGEL STREET, the British detective-thriller which appeared in films as GAS- 
LIGHT. Manfred Hummel played the role of Rough, the Scotland Yard In- 
spector who solved the mystery of why a husband (Dave Monton) wanted to 
drive his wife (Sara Spotswood) out of her mind. Sid Smith stage-managed the 
show, with John Hruhy as house-manager. Costumes: Ann Crabtree. Lighting: 
Don Earnest and Jim Thweatt. Set by Tom Crane, Dick Pusch, Dick Yerger, 
Neil Baudin, Bill Colder, Ron Symonds, Bill Gustafson, Mark Will, Bill Nailen, 
et alii.

Saying It with MUSIC 



The musical year started auspiciously with additions to the staff of 
instructors in music at the Hill, and a renovated Stewartfield hummed 
with more sounds of practicing vocalists and instrumentalists. Hill sing- 
ers helped with two off-campus productions: the Mobile Opera's DON 
PASQUALE March 17-18, and the Opera Guild Workshop's operetta 
THE MERRY WIDOW December 4.

Badger SPORTS 





Aggressive teamwork, as in above photo of Denny Malcor 
and Joe Phelan taken during our Senior Bowl win over touted 
Murray State, was a big source of whatever successes our Hill 
teams scored this year. Student Government went all out to 
bring out more spectators for all Hill sports, and they never went 
away without knowing that their team had done more than just 
put in an appearance.

Facing the toughest schedule of the Hill's cage 
history, Coach Bill Gardiner gathered his available 
forces in September. He had only two returning 
seniors (Carney and Phelan), two juniors from the 
previous year's squad (Irato and Gorman) and two 
sophomore lettermen (O'Connor and Gleeson). 
These veterans, as expected, started the season's 
opener against St. Bernard College and had won 
half of their eight games played before the Christ- 
mas holidays began. Then the roof fell in, with 
Irato and Gorman lost to the squad via scholastic 
difficulties. A promising crop of freshmen tried 
valiantly to take up the slack, but they lacked both 
heighth and experience. However, there were two 
bright spots for the year: we won our opener 
against high-ranked Murray State in the Senior 
Bowl Tourney before dropping a heart-breaker to 
Centenary; and we watched Gardiner's men disor- 
ganize a fine Loyola team, 33-30, in an unforget- 
able thriller.

Senior Bowl Tourney 



After three forgettable losses in the Centenary-sponsored Gulf 
South Classic tournament in Shreveport, it looked as though we 
were out of our class in the at-home Senior Bowl January 6-7. But 
Irato and O'Connor sparked us to an upset win over Murray State 
Teachers in the opener (70-63), and we started strong against Cen- 
tenary, which had trampled famed Tennessee Tech, 87-64, in its 
first-round match. But Centenary's Gents proved too much for us, 
as our over-eager Badgers ran out of gas, fouling often in the final 
minutes, which saw Centenary sew things up with 12 free throws.

TRIBUTE to COACHES 



An athletics era ended this spring when Coach Bill Gardiner 
accepted the offer to become Athletic Director and Head Basket- 
ball Coach at Loyola University of New Orleans. Gardiner had 
headed the Hill's program since March, 1946, and master-minded 
his men to the Gator Bowl basketball championship in 1955, and 
two Senior Bowl titles. Coach Napolitano also announced his 
departure, for Recreation Department sports directing in Tren- 
ton, N. J., his home. He had assisted Gardiner since both ended 
W.W. II service.

Varsity BASEBALL 



Building around a nucleus of senior lettermen, Coach 
Stan Galle whipped together a hustling squad that put 
on a good show in every home game for the Hill's "wall- 
flowers." They beat and tied Auburn, Southeastern 
Conference champs in '58, in the two season openers, but 
the mound staff proved unable to stem the tide in most 
of the following games. At right: Detrio and ball head

Varsity TENNIS 



To the surprise of everyone except those who have 
known all along that Coach Paul was an exceptionally 
able tennis coach, the Tennis Team swept through its 
season with a success unknown here since those pre- 
World War II days when Napolitano himself played Hill 
tennis. Captain Jeb Bousson wound up his four years 
with eleven matches won, none lost, this season. A fine 
frosh-soph group should return next year to run up an 
equally good record, if not better.

Varsity GOLF 



As expected, the Badger golfers swept to a 
successful season, losing but one team match. 
That was to Memphis State, there, by a 13-14 
score, when Barry Moore sank a 15-footer to 
beat us. A similar thriller, this one bringing joy 
to a Hill home gallery, came when Colman Mc- 
Carthy sank a 20-footer on the 18th to beat his 
University of Alabama opponent and swing an 
ll%-9% win for the Purple and White. Barry 
Montgomery and Mike McDermott were pressed 
into service when Tommy Boone and Jim Mon- 
tiegel were lost to the squad toward the season's 
end. In fall matches, a junior-varsity squad won 
one, lost one, tied one.

INTRAMURALS 



VOLLEYBALL 

The Senior "Splinters," led by Tommy Edwards and Neil Baudin, 
swept to championships both in their White League and in the 
Inter-League Tournament. Fellow team-mates were Charlie Gam- 
bel, Rick DelaGuardia, Harold Gaines, Marty O'Donnell and Marce- 
lino Oliva. Their chief competition came in the Inter-League, 
where they beat the "Rangers," headed by Tommy Boone and Len 
Phillips, in three out of four matches. In the Freshman League, 
the "Crackers" piled up a 21-4 record to win. The "Tigers" (Bah- 
linger, Tom Clark, Golder, Hamilton, Hummel, George Imorde, 
Dick McCarthy, Father Miceli, Palermo and Watson) and the 
"Gauchos" (Ahern, M. Azar, Chico, David, Del Carmen, Leo Leo- 
nard, Marti, Ramos, Torres and Wallace) won Badger League 
honors. 

TOUCH FOOTBALL 

Tom Brorby and Andy Clarke led their "Rangers" to champion- 
ships in their Purple League and in the Inter-League Tournament; 
but they had their hands full against the White League champions, 
the senior "Splinters." 

BASKETBALL 

Championship titles went to the senior "Pelicans" and the soph- 
omore "Packers," who won Badger League and Inter-League Tour- 
neys, respectively. The Packers made I.M. history by being the 
first sophomore squad to cop a tourney. Led by Dan Conlin, they 
included Jack Clover, Jack Smith, and Conrad Horecky, who had 
taken the Purple League crown with an 8-1 record. White League 
champs were the senior "Splinters," who were undefeated until 
losing Tommy Edwards and Mick Savage to baseball. Led by Dick 
McCarthy and Jim Montiegel, the Pelicans also were upset winners 
in their division. 

BOWLING 

Playing this year on the Nonnemachers' new bowling lanes just 
off Azalea Road and Grant Street, Father Schwing's keglers headed 
out each Sunday morning after the 8 o'clock Mass. The "High- 
Balls" and "Speed-Balls" swept over all competition. Members of 
the championship High-Ball team were Mick Savage, Tom Edwards, 
Len Phillips, George Imorde and Andy Clarke. The High-Singles 
mark of 221 was set by Tom Edwards, with Jim Murphy setting a 
High-Three total of 558. Among the coed bowlers, Bev Jones 
rolled a high 196 game, and Barbara Weinacker rang up 465 for her 
High-Three mark. Highest averages among the men were nailed 
down by Geoff Curran, Jim Murphv, and Dick Stuardi. 

SOFTBALL 

Freshmen came into their own when their "Arabs" swept to 
championships in the White League and Inter-League Softball 
Tourney, with Ritter hurling beautifully on the mound. His team- 
mates were Ackels, Hettler, J. Wilson, Viola, A. Muscolino, Smor, 
Coerver, Sassone, Galvin, and Shannon. A junior team, the "Eagles," 
forced the Arabs into a rough play-off by dropping them in their 
first tilt, 4-3; but the Arabs came back to beat them 4-0 and 3-2. 
Dave Hirshburg pitched for the Eagles, who were also paced by 
Paul Jurgensen, Bunny Ros and Father Miceli. 

In the Badger League, the "Tigers" were unstoppable, and took 
their tourney title by an 11-1 victory over the junior "Gators." The 
seniors were led by pitcher John Gill, the bats of John Scharfenberg 
and Jim Hamilton, and the fielding of George Imorde and Joe 
Clark. 

SAILING 

Seven colleges competed in the Sugar Bowl Regatta at New 
Orleans Jan. 3, with the Spring Hill Crew tieing Notre Dame for 
second place behind the University of Alabama's 21% points. Mer- 
rill True (skipper) and Madeline Moffett (crewing) took 16 points. 
The 2nd annual Southern Intercollegiate Sailing Regatta was held 
at Pass Christian, Miss., April 18-19, with eight schools participat- 
ing. Bud Barrett skippered Merrill True and Joe Schildt to a tie for 
2nd with Tulane in the first race, but other crews did not place. 

The Badger Sailing Club, organized last year with Father Rhein 
as Moderator, has Bud Barrett as Commodore-; Tim Murray, vice- 
commodore; Marilyn Johnson, secretary; Merrill True, treasurer. 
Other members: Paul Bruckner, Barry Carmody, Fred Caver, Jack 
Clover, John Dwyer, Marty Golden, Joe Kiowski, Carey March, Joe 
Schildt, Hue Thomas.

Spring Hill Battalion, R.O.T.C 




As expected, the Hill's R.O.T.C. cadets rounded 
into shape by mid-year and won praise from visiting 
inspection teams. Lt. Col. James H. Reynolds (insert 
in Rattalion photo above) headed the Regular Army 
cadre as P. M.S. and T., assisted by his staff detail and 
the cadet staff headed by Cadet Lt. Col. R. William 
Dunne. Resides the regular Friday afternoon drills 
and reviews, cadets spent two or three class or field 
practice hours per week, with sophomores and juniors 
also toiling during a Summer Camp at Fort Renning. 
This year also saw the dedication of a memorial to 
Hill alumni and faculty who have seen service in our 
country's wars.

Battalion Sponsors 

Certainly a distinctive feature of the Hill Battalion is 
the group of coeds who drill and parade with the cadets as 
Battalion "Sponsors." They are chosen by vote of the Bat- 
talion, after being introduced during a break in one of the 
early drills. This year they made another uniform change, 
appearing in powder-blue shirts and caps, and darker blue 
skirts.

PERSHING RIFLES 



It was a most successful year for the Hill's 5th Com- 
pany, Sixth Regiment, Pershing Rifles. They were named 
best company in the Regiment, on the basis of all-around 
performance in drill and for their esprit de corps. In the 
annual drill meet, held this year in New Orleans, the Spring 
Hill contestants placed second in individual basic drill, sec- 
ond in squad drill, and third in company fancy, which gave 
them second place in the drill meet. First place winner 
there was the Tulane company of Pershing Rifles, whom 
the Hill group met again May 16 in a special exhibition 
drill at Brookley Field on Armed Forces Day. This time 
Spring Hill came out on top. Together with Scabbard and 
Blade, Hill Pershing Rifles members contributed the funds 
for the new memorial dedicated November 11.

Special recognition came to the Band this year by way 
of commendation during the Informal Inspection. In ad- 
dition to the weekly reviews, the Band also played and 
marched for the Christ the King Parade, and parades for 
the United Fund and Armed Forces Day. After the lat- 
ter, they performed for Brookley Field visitors. For this 
and for the annual Azalea Trail Concert on campus, the 
Band was augmented by coeds and local high school stu- 
dents. Personnel of the CONCERT Band: Director, Mr.

man's Orchestra providing big music. Elected Queen 
of the Ball, Miss Jeanne Edgar was feted alone with 
her ladies-in-waiting: Joy Serda and Mary Ann Bailey.

awards and to show off for visitors. Thirty-nine cadets were sworn 
in May 25 as 2nd Lieutenants in Uncle Sam's Army, by Colonel 
Joseph N. Langan, Hill alumnus and former instructor, who is a 
Mobile City Commissioner and nominee as Commander of Ala- 
bama's National Guard. After the awards and final review, new
